This presentation will review presently available level 3 DC fast charging systems, followed by a brief description and evaluation of DC fast-charging infrastructure. Different power converter topologies and viable configurations will be presented, compared, and evaluated. These topologies will be compared based on their power levels, efficiency, cost, and specifications. The talk will introduce for the first time the possibility of employing a 3-phase, 3-switch (TPTS) converter as a single-stage charger for DC fast charging. A new modulation technique for controlling a TPTS converter will also be introduced. Experimental verification and test results of the designed converter/charger prototype will be presented.�
